    Enermax Galaxy 850W Review - A Closer Look at the Enermax Galaxy

    (Page 4 of 7 )

    One thing is certain: the specifications look great on the Galaxy, but exactly how good does the Galaxy look? I was ready to see for myself.

    The first thing I noticed when I opened up the Galaxy was that everything was boxed up separately. There is a large box which contains just the power supply unit, which is larger than most power supply boxes on its own, and an additional box, slightly smaller, and much lighter, labeled accessory box. It contains several beautifully wrapped modular power leads, case badges, lanyard, and mounting hardware, as well as the instruction manual.

    What makes the Galaxy so special though? Well let's just jump right into things and check out those internals, where the Galaxy shines. First things first: cooling. The Galaxy is cooled by a giant 135mm fan, to pull exhausted air out of the chassis and through the PSU. This air is blown directly over the heat sinks of the PSU.

    Enermax didn't skimp out on the heat sinks either; they are massive enough to ensure system stability and performance in temperatures upwards of 50C. The heat within the power supply is pulled out the back with the aid of an 80mm fan, to send the surrounding air outside the chassis.

    The untrained eye might not notice a few components in the Galaxy PSU, such as the use of triple transformers. Most high end power supplies only use one; very few use two. The Galaxy dedicates one transformer for the 12v rail for the processor; the others take care of the other components in the system. This provides the ultimate solution for stability of the triple quad, quad CPU, quad SLI, and quad graphics. It also provides power for 24 peripherals.
